Ketosis-prone diabetes (KPD) is a widespread, heterogeneous syndrome characterized by diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or unprovoked ketosis without a precipitating cause that is not necessarily associated with the typical phenotype of autoimmune type 1 diabetes. The presence or absence of β-cell autoimmunity and β-cell functional reserve are important for pathophysiology, clinical course, and outcome. Recently, a few classifications were reported that were clinically and etiologically useful for predicting outcomes. The "A β" classification system of KPD has proven to be highly accurate and predictive of clinically important outcomes such as glycemic control and insulin dependence. We reviewed four Korean cases of KPD that manifested with DKA, along with a review of the related literature. (Korean Clinical Diabetes J 11:342-348, 2010)
